Bachmann Is Right: Mainstream Media Is Rooting For Female Conservatives To Self-Destruct

We think it is a good thing that female conservatives are stepping forward and looking to unseat President Obama. Regardless of whether or not you support Rep. Michele Bachmann or former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, one thing is clear: the notion of a female conservative running for president seems to unnerve the mainstream media.

Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann claimed Wednesday that the media is rooting for a catfight between her and Sarah Palin.

“They want to see two girls come together and have a mud wrestling fight, and I am not going to give that to them,” Bachmann told a voter Wednesday who asked about her relationship with the former Alaska governor.

The Minnesota congresswoman praised Palin and said there is room in the Republican presidential race for any candidate.

“This race is wide open and we can accommodate all the candidates who want to come in,” she said.

She urged Republicans to unite behind “the ultimate goal” of defeating President Barack Obama in 2012.
